Interesting. I was just writing up a post on the early days of Truckin'. That would make 8/17 the first live Truckin', supplanting the next night, 8/18, in which they did indeed open with an acoustic Truckin' that was up 'til now considered the first.

The first electric Truckin' on LMA is from 10/4/70. Although I wouldn't necessarily put it past them to have played an electric version on 8/17.

On the other hand, perhaps the writer is remembering the Truckin from 8/18. Many of those other songs -- Cumberland, NSWB, Swing Low -- were played on the 19th as well.
